Book Review: The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt

My grandmother was a college flapper during the 1920's and kept a big black scrapbook of cards, tickets, and other paper ephemera she collected. It is still a wonderful book to look through with a cup of tea and a sister to share the pages. Naturally I was drawn to the recent book by Caroline Preston, "The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt". Like my grandmother's book, it gathers up a visual collage of period items, but in this case, there is a narrative story to keep the pages turning.

It's that time of year when gift giving can become a burden, especially when trying to find a sweet surprise for your best friend, cousin or sister. "The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt" fills the bill for one of the best gift books of the season.

This colorful book is especially perfect for people who love vintage. Some of the best pages are shown in full color HERE. These pages ring true like a real scrap book, filled with the little things of a bygone day when young women exchanged notes and young men sent letters. When you locate a copy, you may want to pick up one for your own bedside reading too.

One more thing, there is a lovely video to promote the book. It will make you want to see it even more, HERE!
